UAC has to be turned off to run MS Office 2007

    I installed MS Office 2007 Enterprise edition on a new computer with Vista
    Ultimate 64 bit edition. It works fine if UAC is turned off but as soon as I
    turn it back on and start any "office" program it goes into a set up. Then
    it tells me that "MS Office has not been installed for the current user.
    Please run setup to install application." I have deleted users, added users
    - all have administrative rights. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. This
    version of office works fine on an "XP" machine.

    Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated.

    I haven't had this problem with Vista or Office 2007. On my systems
    UAC is never turned off but I may have installed Office 2007 as an
    administrator (I don't remember). To run the setup as an administrator,
    right click the setup.exe file then select "run as administrator". Have a
    great day.

    I had done that already, too.

  4. Uninstall Office, reboot, and try another installation. Something is wrong
    on the local machine. I have not seen any issues with Office 2007
    Enterprise Edition on any of my Vista machines, and two of them run Vista
    Ultimate x64.

    Are you running as an admin or as a user?
    Did you install Office while using an Admin login?
    For vista, almost all software, including Office, has to be installed while
    logged on as an admin..

    Vista also enforces rules as to where user (read user login) data can be

  6. If you install anything as a user you will be asked for an admin password.
    If you install anything as an admin user you will be asked for confirmation
    to continue. It really doesn't require running the installer as admin. I
    installed as an admin user. I don't think this is your issue.

    I have administrative rights so I was logged in as administrator. I also
    uninstalled, then installed Office 2003. That worked perfectly. I upgraded
    to 2007 and have the same problems. As soon as I turn off UAC, everything
    works properly

  8. Have you asked in the Office newsgroups? I am running Office 2007 on two
    machines running Vista Ultimate x64 without issues.

    I am also running on Vista64 Ultimate with no problems. Could it be a
    version difference. I am using the Home and Student version.

  10. I have never heard of that difference between editions.

    I haven't either, but it is a possibility.
